Device & Specs

From a hardware standpoint, both have relatively similar performance and parts under the hood, but the two main differences are the 7.0 Plus' IR blaster, and the 10.1's much larger screen. You'll have to decide which is best for you, but much of this comes down to cost and screen size.

Screen

While the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus has a very small screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a huge 10.1 inch screen with a somewhat proportionally smaller resolution. Both do fairly well in our tests, but both are extremely reflective.

Battery

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 has the superior battery, lasting well over what the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus can in both reading eBooks and playing back video.

eReader

Because from a software standpoint, both tablets are identical, this comparison comes down to form factor, and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is far easier to hold for longer periods of time in one hand or two.

Internet

Both have identical internet features, though the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus can also control your TV or home theater setup through an app and its onboard IR blaster.
